Inspiral is a work that arises within a residence of the Specialization in Sound Art of the National University Tres de Febrero in Artlab. It is composed by Cecilia Simone on gong with expanded techniques, including piezoelectric amplification; Sebastián Miño on guitar; and Gabriel Latorre on bass and synthesizer.The composition was conceived by sculpting and organizing ideas from improvisation, and develops from sound art through territories close to music such as ambient, noise and post-rock. It is also accompanied by an audiovisual piece.
Cecilia Simone has a degree in Image and Sound Design (UBA) and a student of the Specialization in Sound Art (UNTREF). She has spent a decade investigating the sonority of a symphonic gong in its acoustic possibilities and in recordings with piezoelectric microphones; minute or hour continuums and compositions in DAWs; explore gestures and elements to execute it as a mallet, flumi or bow. She performs experimental improvisations, blending her immersive harmonic sound with other instruments.
